Having been very inactive for a while (I have a list of excuses, some better than others), I determined to be a bit more mobile with the purchase of a Lithium Iron Phosphate battery. This is my first deep sky target driving the mount away from a mains connection. Stacked in Deep Sky Stacker and final adjustments in Astro Art 6.
